London's Burning
The story of the Great Fire of London in 1666

  It’s September 1666. Meet Mrs Wellbake, cook to Mr Samuel Pepys. Hear her first hand account of the Great Fire of London. Her mission is to make sure this tragedy never happens again.

  With the help of the audience, using artefacts, props and costume, she and the children will re-enact the drama of the fire and help to plan a fire-free future for the city of London.

  While engaging with this fascinating historical episode, the children will have lots of fun and be fired with enthusiasm!

  Our most popular storytelling show.

"All the children were involved and we are amazed at how much all three classes learned within an hour. It was so skilfully and professionally presented and we are all still talking about your brilliant performance. We used the show as a learning platform in Literacy, ITC and in History and the children got so much out of it.
Ratka Pejakovic, Convent of Jesus and Mary, Willesden.

"The show was fantastic. Year 2 thoroughly enjoyed it. It was very inclusive and engaging as all the children took part and it has really supported their learning of the events of 1666. In fact, they spent the rest of the day creating very realistic fire paintings, writing sentences about the important events of the Great Fire and deciding what three special things they would bury (in the light of what Samuel Pepys buried). A big thank you from Year 2!
Vauxhall Primary School, Lambeth.

This show lasts one hour and is suitable for up to 120
children in a hall or other large space.
